Visual media makes pranking people with laxatives look like fun, but eating too many laxatives can lead to serious health problems including kidney failure, low potassium levels and severe dehydration.
A bonehead named BG learned this lesson the hard way when he decided to participate in some stupid online laxative-eating competition- but instead of eating one or two laxative-filled brownie he ate 25 in an hour.
Each brownie contained the recommended adult dose of 2 laxative tablets, so needless to say BG was stuck in the bathroom, but it's the other effects of a laxative overdose which he'll never forget:
This foolish move sparked a trail of events starting with massive dehydration and low potassium. It led to rhabdomyolysis and acute kidney injury. If left in this condition without aid, “your body, down to its bones, will rot away and eventually you'll die in a pool of your own waste that should have been in your urine," Chubbyemu explains. Nice.
